Well, this week was a rapid one. My companion headed down to Kungsbacka the day before transfers to visit his family, which left a convert of two years from England to be my companion for the day. Good ol' Elder Morley.
Sometimes in the frivolity of our daily lives, and the opportunities that lay before us, we forget the core beliefs that can truly heal the wounded heart.
Which naturally leads us to ponder how this healing occurs. And in Alma chapter 38:8-9, Alma testifies to his son, through experience of what this healing is. He doesn't say he saw Christ, or he knew Christ, he said that when he called on Christ. It's my personal belief that he may have called on other hopes, people, loved ones, ideas, epiphanies, theories, strategies, or whatever healing aid that his mind could come up with, but it was not until he called on Christ that he felt this joy, and this hope. That testified to him, in a very unique way that I find much more similar to my conversion, that Jesus is the Christ. How did he find it out? Through experience, and testing that waters, if you will.
With Easter yesterday, there was lots of time to reflect on Christ. We watched a movie about him in Sunday school, then the sacrament obviously, then we taught members about the Atonement, and ended the day in Västra Frölunda with an Easter Concert that was absolutely amazing. I have been so blessed to get to know the wonderful people here, missionaries, members, and nonmembers alike - but especially to know the power the Christ has, and gives.
We received a car this week, so that will make my last week full week of proselyting twice as effective, and me and Michael NG are stoked to be here in Göteborg for as long as the Lord sees fit.
Love you all.
